AADE17 Education Proposal Submission

AADE17 Education Proposal Submission

The American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) Annual Conference is the premier event for diabetes educators. AADE17 is an exceptional opportunity to be a part of innovation in the world of diabetes and healthcare. More than 3,700 diabetes educators and other healthcare professionals are expected to gather at the AADE17 Annual Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana Friday, August 4 – Monday, August 7, 2017. AADE17 will allow you to connect, collaborate, and educate yourself and others about pressing diabetes-related issues.

The Annual Conference Planning Committee invites you to submit an education session proposal to be considered for presentation in Indianapolis. Interactions with colleagues related to diabetes management and education are the cornerstone to building communications that allow all of us to provide better healthcare. Presenting at AADE17 is an excellent opportunity for you to share your knowledge, experiences and expertise with the diabetes education community.

Diabetes educators touch patients at various points across the continuum of care: from diabetes prevention to diagnosis of prediabetes or diabetes, all the way through to treatment and advanced management. Diabetes educators use skills that are comprised of prevention, treatment and chronic disease management, as well as partnering with patients to enable them to achieve behavior change. Final education session proposal selections will be based on the quality, clarity of the submission and topical relevance to the contemporary practice environment of today’s diabetes educator.

Preparing the Education Session Proposal
The submission process is very detailed and requires the entry of very specific information. It is strongly suggested that you enter the submission site and begin your submission well in advance of the deadline. Users unfamiliar with the submission site and last minute rushes to submit work are the primary source of error in the submission process.

Proofread education session proposals carefully to remove any errors before submission. If accepted, your education session proposal will be published as submitted.

Individuals employed by a commercial interest are not permitted to present, unless the topic is unrelated to their products or services.
